I plan to actually attend a herp show at some point in 2010/2011. It'll be my first despite having been keeping for over a decade. But since I've never done this before I have some questions:

How does payment work? Do most vendors have it set up to take credit/debit cards at shows, or do you bring cash? What about more expensive animals?
After you buy an animal, what happens? Do you just carry it around the show with you, do the vendors hold it till you leave, or what?
How crowded/noisy are they? I'm planning to go to one in Austin or Dallas, or maybe OKC. They're the closest. I'm a bit nervous in/near crowds.
ANything useful from those that have attended shows? I'm not going as a seller, just a buyer/looky-lou.
